Do you know the Hulk has these five weaknesses?
Bruce Banner truly is the Incredible Hulk. Considered to be one of the strongest Marvel characters, and definitely the strongest Avenger (sorry Thor!), the Hulk has super strength, healing factors and the ability to gain strength proportionally with his rage.
These factors make the Hulk's strength potentially limitless. Despite this, Hulk has lost several battles.
Here, we bring you five weaknesses of Hulk.
Choking on the rage
Despite being super-powered from the gamma accident, the Hulk's physiology remains same as a human being's.
Therefore, Hulk needs oxygen to survive. Notably, in a battle with Namor the submariner, Hulk was dragged to the bottom of the ocean where lack of air knocked him out.
Another time, Spider-Man imbued with cosmic powers, punched Hulk into space where he faced the possibility of death.
The illusion of free will
Despite all his physical prowess, Hulk's mind is open to attacks.
Therefore, Hulk can easily be mind controlled to negate his strength and essentially turn him into doing villains' bidding.
Over the Marvel comics, Mentallo turned Hulk into a servant, Onslaught convinced Hulk to almost kill Cable, the X-Man, and Tyrannus convinced the green rage monster to destroy an airplane filled with people.
Under the influence of magic
Physically strong characters cannot hold a candle to the powers of magic and sorcery in the Marvel Universe.
One time, Strange simply transported Hulk to a different dimension without even engaging physically.
Notably, Hulk cannot handle Thor's magical hammer, Mjolnir and Zeus's magical lightning bolts.
Curse of being a man among gods
Hulk, despite all his strength, does not fare well against Gods. Believing in the absolute superiority of his strength, Hulk often enters battles with characters much stronger than him.
Notably, his battles with Thor can swing either way, but the time he took on Zeus, he realized the true power of a Thunder God.
Zeus delivers a humiliating beating Hulk likely never forgot.
Scratching the surface of Hulk's strength
Hulk's super strength ensures that normal weapons do not even penetrate his skin. He has even been known to withstand energy blasts.
However, a special metal can hurt Hulk, and ironically one of his most battled characters has it. Wolverine's Adamantium claws can cut Hulk's tissue.
Notably, one time, in 'Old Man Logan', when Hulk ate up Wolverine, he ripped Hulk from the inside.
